Jessica Fontenot is an artist curious about our everyday surroundings—buildings, highways, trucks, etc. Much of her work documents these subjects, revealing the inherent beauty of our world that we often ignore.

In 2016, Jessica began a project of drawing a building everyday. What was a technical exercise evolved into a deep dive into how government policies shape neighborhoods by race. This exposed the deep systemic racism in city planning and it wove these themes into her work. With a background in science, Jessica is an analytical thinker who enriches her art with research and found data. 

In 2022, she released The Roadtrip Show, a body of work that documents her own memories of growing up in the South and our current industrial landscape. 

Jessica continues to take photographs from the driver’s seat and turn them into artworks.
